    Yes, Maplewood and South Orange were, at one time, the same town...I thought I would do my whole career there as well, pretty much all the patent attorneys I worked with were axed or left after...Lucent, Alcatel, Nokia...etc. I was the first rat to leave the sinking ship... Nice area, taxes WAY too high...

    The two towns share a school district and (more recently) a fire department, so perhaps moving toward one-town consolidation again (I think the nature of the forms of government are the sticking point). And yes famously high taxes despite which I still have several family members living there.

    Could you not have turned the other cheek?
